The Primate of the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, The Most Rev’d Dr. Henry Ndukuba has urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to come up with urgent measures to ameliorate the effect of the present economic hardship on Nigerians.
In his sermon at the annual Abuja Diocesan Women Conference in Abuja with the theme: Walk Before Me And Be Blameless taken from Genesis 17:1, Archbishop Henry Ndukuba said the present foreign exchange rate and petrol subsidy removal have made the prices of goods and services beyond the reach of common citizens.
According to the Primate, Kidnapping, armed robbery, and insecurity have become the order of the day in the country.
He appealed to Nigerians not to take laws into their own hands and to remain patriotic as God has not forgotten the country.
Archbishop Henry admonished all that the present situation must not be allowed to change their faith in God because He has a special interest in the affairs of Nigeria.
He charged women to look beyond material things and use their numerical strength in the Church and Society to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world.
The President of the Mother’s Union and Women Guild, Mrs Angela Ndukuba said this year’s conference would be used to address challenges facing women in their daily activities, especially at this time of economic hardship, provide capacity building, and build their faith in God.
The Four-day conference has over Five Thousand Women from Abuja Diocese in attendance.
The conference started with the eucharistic service presided over by the Primate who is the bishop of Abuja Diocese.
Mama Nigeria, Mrs Angela Ndukuba is expected to deliver her address to the women on Saturday 14th October 2023 by 12 noon.
